Martellus Bennett Pulls YouTube Clip Showing Him Dressed As Osama

The various social media antics of Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett - Marty B if you're nasty - have never shied away from the purposefully objectionable. One needs only recall the outcry that followed his video depicting the stereotype reinforcing events of the "Black Olympics" to get a proper sense of what we're dealing with.

While Marty B leaves those of delicate sensibilities to rail at his lack of taste, he's usually unapologetic about his borderline offensive goofiness. This time, however, it appears he discovered quickly that he might have gone too far. In his latest YouTube clip, which he pulled soon after blogs began posting it, he donned a fake beard and began dancing around what appeared to be a tattoo parlor while a screen title flashed "Osama Bin Happenin'"

Oh, and this was put up on July 4.

Bennett has been disciplined on several occasions because of his Internet high jinx and likely will be once again. Whether or not he swiftly pulled the video, it was up long enough to garner the attention of a few influential NFL blogs, who because of his previous exploits have made it a habit to monitor his Twitter and YouTube accounts for further inanity. Punishing Bennett might be seen as more evidence of the No Fun League, but no one can claim he didn't bring it on himself.
